PI LAB - Christine Suurtamm

This innovative laboratory studies the teaching and learning of mathematics, using cutting edge video technology. Several projects examine the impact of teachers’ understanding of mathematics on their teaching, as well as its effect on their classroom instructions. Ultimately, the goal is to develop more effective ways to teach mathematics to deepen students’ knowledge of the subject.
